English written (sic)

An term supposed to describe a category of matchbox label with English words only.  Its use is, in itself, a travesty of  English because of its appalling bad grammar.  It would not be considered correct in any of the variants of English found throughout the world unless it is meant to mean labels written by an English person – in this case it would include labels designed by an English person writing in a foreign language and exclude labels incorporating only English words but designed by a non-English person.  A better term would be English language matchbox label.  It should be noted that many English written (sic) labels have titles that cannot be found in English dictionaries and strictly should not be considered as collectable by those seeking this category.
